Freshly made muesli with a range of dairy-free milk options. Friendly service, a peaceful atmosphere. I am not a coffee connoisseur but my long black was perfectly good. Prices are very reasonable, too!

I stopped at the Hunters' Root during my short stay in Melbourne. I had a delicious smoothie bowl but also had the opportunity to chat with the lovely couple that manage the place. I would totally recommend this authentic and tasty place!

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
